Iowa State running back DeVondrick Nealy received a citation Wednesday night for violating the Ames city noise ordinance.
It could have easily been avoided.
According to the Des Moines Register, Nealy was given a warning for the loud music coming from his parked car by Ames police -- but he didn’t listen. Fifteen minutes later, Nealy received a citation at 11:55 p.m. for the loud music because “an officer heard music from a block away.”
“We’re trying to reasonable, trying to give people a warning, and we did,” said Ames police commander Geoff Huff. “He got his warning.”
A violation of the city’s noise ordinance is a simple misdemeanor that can result in up to a $115 fine.
Nealy, who is second on the team’s depth chart at running back, had 41 carries for 158 yards and two touchdowns (including this highlight reel score) last season and is expected to see a heightened role in his junior season for the Cyclones.
Nealy was previously suspended indefinitely by the team in June 2011 after he was with a group that was allegedly shooting things with a BB gun on campus in the early morning.
